We stayed at the West Wind Wednesday 9/28/05 and checked out Saturday morning 10/1/05. We had a nice room in the Driftwood Building with a kitchenette and a great view overlooking the beach and Gulf. The room was small but adequate for two. The kitchen area perfectly sized for breakfast and lunch preparations, though a bit more counter space would have been useful. One thing I must mention is everything looked very clean and well maintained. The screened in balcony was an added plus though it's fairly small. The grounds around the WWI look to be well-maintained and kept also. The pool and surrounding deck (with the pool bar) was very nice, though I'm sure it could easily become very crowded.
The staff we encountered seemed very nice.
